Ocean View High parlayed strong pitching with a lively offense Monday to pick up another victory in its summer prep baseball season.

The Seahawks took the lead for good on Laguna Beach in the third inning and went on to take a 9-1 game from the visiting Breakers. The win put the Seahawks at 4-3 overall.

"I'm really happy how we have been pitching," Ocean View Coach Shane Borowski. "It's keeping us in every game and helping us be competitive. We are getting a lot of strikes, the defense is alert because of it, and we are making plays. The hitting comes and goes, and we need to execute better offensively, but our pitching and defense has been a plus so far this summer."

Steven Cotton, who will be a junior in the fall, allowed one unearned run in two innings pitched. Dustin Fisher, a senior, struck out one in an inning's work. Also taking turns on the mound were sophomore Braydon Salzman (two strikeouts), senior Ramon Sepulveda (four strikeouts) and junior Jett Volo (one strikeout).

Two key hits put Ocean View in the lead. Mikey Giacone hit an RBI single with two out in the third to put the Seahawks in front to stay. An RBI sacrifice by junior Gabe Ledezma preceded Giacone's hit and had tied the score.

With two out in the fifth, sophomore Ben Myers broke the game open with a bases-loaded double that brought in two more runs.
